As the "Rambler" greets the readers of the Bakoh anb Bame for the first time they will notice that he stands on a broad platform, But theu his very name suggests his doing so.

Ho is not one of your narrow pnthway writers, who give themselves solely to one class of news, or to the study of one subject. Nol the Rambler wants to ramble and so in this column be not surprise 1 if he turn suddenly from grave to gay from the sublime to the rediculous, One week he may gravely ponder over the affairs of state and ihe European situation while the next week may find him meditating on the latest Freqoh scandal or sitting in judgement on an epic poem. The readers of this paper possesst different tastes and the Rambler, desirous of counting all hia friends, will try and interest them all. So here is bis hand! Give him your. never mind how it looks i It may be hard and rough with thickened finger tips and norny palm, it may be delicate and fair.

But whether it be the hand that guides the plow or the hand that rocks the cradle: the hand of old age or of youth, of man or woman, boy or girl, of sick or well, of millionaire or beg gar, bedecked with jewels or bedeck ed with hardship's scars, the Ramb ler wants that hand to turn down the Ranch and Range at this column every week and follow what his hand has produced. And this is the Rambler's column. Here you will find no spring poems, no local items, no patent medicine tettimonials, no sparkling head lines, These all may find their place but not here. His sign is out, he has taken pos session, he is here to stay. Regular places of business are the The successful business men are generally found "at the old stand." When you receive your paper, all frenhly laden with the perfume of printer's ink; you will not need to turn acrobat dislocate your neck, turn the papers inside out lose your temper in order to find the Rambler.

His rambling today is in the past You know how experiences are stored away, like the photographer's negatives for future use. Copies can always be procured. New and then, impression is lost or shattered, or fades away after great lapse of time; but, as a rule, pictures can be. procured which are true to the original and the nega tives can be laid aside till needed The Rambler has had out a couple of negatives today. Though a little obscure in detail, their out line remains very clear.

They pur- tray his early journalistic experi-' once. Don't imagine by this, how ever, that the Rambler is aged, for he. is but a youth, although these pictures seem to him old indee 1. He was a school boy then, but oon't imagine, young folks, it was in these days Of pretty teachers and go as you please attendance. It was at bqarding a school that the Ratnblar first plunged into the bottomless ocean or knowledge ana lor six months at a time he was left to the mercy (or lack of mercy) of the good presiding dame, who believed her self th natural born enemy of boys in geueral, and the Rambler in particular.

But there he edited a pa per. It was a very modest produc tion, all written in the editor's own hand. It was good and it died young; laugned to death by unap-preeiative companions. The end was peace. The second negative Beta forth a later experience.

Having passed from school to college and gained much in knowledge, the former editor, in conjunction with a kindred spirit, set on foot a 16 page monthly magaaine which enjoyed the classic name of "Endymion." But the en. joyment was short lived. One num ber alone appeared, ine nm was the last and the last was the nrnt. Rambler thought it a masterpiece! It contained among other things the opening chapter of a serial story whlcu 'a8 beautifully illustrated in colors on the that page. It con-tained a page of original poetry and the obituary of a man who was afterwards found to be alive.

Endymion'a appearance was cordially welcomed but unfortunately the editors had a little falling out and No. 2 never appeared. It never will. Dear me) what rambling! and over a dead past! But the pictures remain and are precious. Carefully put away the negatives, they may yet again ftive pleasure.
